Hi! It's been over a month since my last post and I'm STILL waiting on my Pottery Barn Kids order! Grrrrr... I put a massive rant on their Facebook page, it won't make my delivery come any faster but it did make me feel better.
I hit 30 weeks on Friday!
I can't believe how time has flown! I have only 28 working days left at work!
How far along? 30 weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain: 7 kilos. My weight hasn't changed in 5 weeks?
Maternity Clothes: Tights/leggings 24/7. I'm finding jeans are so uncomfortable at the moment. I also bought a few awesome tops from Kmart like this stripey one for just $10.
Stretch marks? Unfortunately yes, With all the moisturising and bio-oiling I've been doing, it doesn't seem to have helped at all. I have more on my left hip than my right and they are a dark pinkish purple colour, A few around the inside of my knees and on my bottom. Hehehe.. I can see a few more will sprout at the bottom of my belly too very soon :(
Symptoms: Starting to feel very tired now, When I come home from work, I usually have a little nanna nap on the lounge, sore back, sore legs, swollen fingers, crazy mood swings - I cried and got mad at D when he came home the other day because he had called an hour and a half earlier saying he would buy me a sandwich for lunch, he ended up getting caught up at training. By the time he arrived I was starving, it was 3pm!! (I didn't want anything that we had at home) I was Hangry. The sandwich was crap, I didn't finish it, yelled at him and went to bed. Hahaha stupid I know.
Sleep: I'm starting to get bouts of insomnia and waking around 2am and can't fall back to sleep. Tossing over in bed is difficult now, there's a lot of moaning and groaning involved. Lol. I bought a pregnancy wedge last week and it has been amazing. I don't know why I waited so long to get one!
Best moment of the week: Hitting 30 weeks, hanging some of Boo's clothes (i need more hangers!) and finally putting the cot together.
Miss anything? Runny egg. I know I could eat it if I wanted to but I don't want to risk it. I also miss being agile. I'm so bloody slow right now, I feel useless around the house because everything I do makes me sore.
Movement: Little Miss is moving heaps at the moment. Her movements are less jumpy than they were and more like a rolling, limbs or bum protruding out of my belly kind of thing. At night especially after dinner, it's like a dance party in there. My whole belly shakes! I'm really loving all the movement.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Brushing my teeth! I have to do it really quick and also hum at the same time. This stops me from vomiting for some reason. lol.
Are you starting to show? Yup! I've had a few people ask me when I'm due and I've also had a few people tell me they were as big as me full term. Ain't that lovely?? They're also a whole foot taller than me, so that probably explains it, my baby is tucked into a little ball and theirs could stand in their bellies :) Hehehehe...
Baby is a: Girl
Belly Button in or out? It's out now, omg it's looks so gross.
Happy or Moody most of the time? A little bit of both. Mostly happy though, with spurts of moody.
Looking forward to: My check up next week, My mum and sister are coming along to meet my OB and to see baby and My baby shower is next Saturday!
About 2 weeks ago I failed the 2 hour Gestational Diabetes test. My midwife called me in the afternoon, saying I had just failed by .3 but they still have to monitor me as having GD. I was a little bummed when she called because I had thought I was doing really well with my diet. She explained sometimes it's not always diet but a pregnancy hormone or even due to my ethnicity. So the next day I went to see the Endocrinologist, he was lovely. Basically told me what I can and can't eat and that I will be testing myself 3 times a day and where he wanted my levels to be at. He also said that quite a few short people, like me, often fail. What the?? Ah well.
I've been doing pretty well with my eating so far, levels have been perfect each time but damn, I am craving some KFC Hot and Spicy Chickennnnnn!!!
Have a lovely looooong weekend!
